    Long work hours ( You have to work on US and some part of India work hours)

    Become a solution focussed organization that will provide quality solutions at lower margins in order to effectively compete with TCS/Cognizant/Wipro/Infy etc

  3.  

    Sweatshop mentality and Cover Ups

    I have been working at IGATE

    Pros

    A paycheck, even though IGATE is known for paying some of the lowest wages in the industry.

    Cons

    Managers coming over from India manage as though they are still in a third-world country where they can say and do whatever they want to employees. When an employee files a formal complaint, they are transferred. When an employee files a sexual harassment complaint, it goes "nowhere". Employees are categorized "salaried" so no overtime has to be paid, and "that's the way they pay everyone in India". Promotions are almost impossible, and average raise is 1% annually. Everything is a facade to placate the stockholders and board of directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice to give. Any advice given would fall on deaf ears unless it is going to improve the bottom line. Educating managers from other countries about employee rights in the U.S. may keep them from being sued. And all of the complaints that get ignored, misplaced, or covered up, will only be worse when they are finally discovered. This company can't expect to bring sweatshop actions into the U.S. and think it is going to be ignored. If they don't improve, I would be very surprised if the Unions didn't come in. Perhaps that is what is needed for a company that manages similar to the sweatshops of the 1800s.

    I worked at IGATE

    Pros

    Online learning environment which allows for attending classes from anywhere.

    Cons

    Miscommunication or none at all between client and company.
    Company does not care about employee but about their reputation.
    Employes are treated unfairly while on assignment.
    New projects are not found in a timely manner.
    Company has higher managerial issues such as incompetence.
    Company creates issues and does not have the brains to solve. On top of consulting work, employees have to solve issues for IGATE.
    Computer software platforms and programming sucks.
    No quality customer service.
    No honesty with employee; expressed to employee of a full-time assignment when it was a 6 month contract.
    Low pay with tons of work and NO OVERTIME ALLOWED.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LEARN YOUR JOB AND COMMUNICATE WITH POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES AND CLIENT BEFORE HIRING EMPLOYEES ON ASSIGNMENT.
